Beautiful Begonias

September: Flower Portrait

There’s no doubt about it – in summer, England does potted plants better than anywhere else I’ve been. Beautiful baskets hang on every building, overflowing with geraniums, fuschias and lobelia.


Colourful pots and boxes adorn every spare corner and line every street.


Of all the spectacular blooms I’ve seen, the vibrant begonias are my favourite.


The richness and ruffles of the supersize blooms surprise me each time, and I have to stop and take one more photo.

  1. Beautiful blooms in Britain πŸ™‚ I was very surprised to see so many lovely pots and hanging baskets on my travels along the east coast and also in Shrewsbury on my way back home. I love it that towns and cities do this sort of thing even if I’m not a huge fan of bedding plants per se.
